Our church celebrates freedom of belief and welcomes individuals and families of all backgounds and faiths. Unitarian Universalism does not advocate a particular creed. We come together because of our shared commitment to values and to ways of living, not to religious dogma. See “What Is UU?” for more about the long history and tradition of Unitarian Universalism.

The Strafford Universalist Society is the second oldest in Vermont and fourth oldest in the nation. Though the society was dormant for several years in the 1980s and 1990s, we are now growing again, meeting in the “new” church built in 1833 in South Strafford.We hope you will join us.

Sunday, January 1st, 10am. Traveling a New Way on Ancient Paths led by
Rev. Telos Whitfield.

As we embark a new year together, we will explore ancient and timeless ways and practices that can inspire us and deepen our commitment to peaceful, compassionate living, and perhaps inspire us to act on behalf of those nearest to us, and far away. In the Christian tradition, the time of Epiphany symbolizes a waking up to new life and possibility in the birth of Jesus - what new path is waiting for us?
**Bon Voyage Potluck Brunch at 11:15am for Fred & Lorry who are moving to Texas. We have been graced with their involvement, ideas, action and inspiration for many years, and we will miss them greatly!
